A Warm Day In February

We had a heat wave here that past couple days. The sun came out and it warmed up to 65 degrees! I took the girls outside and we stomped in puddles, played in the melting snow, soaked up the sunshine, went for a walk and grilled out for dinner!

Now it's back to a chilly 25 degrees and snowing today. Boo hoo! It was nice to have warm for even a few days though, it was like a promise that Spring is right around the corner.

“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want—oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
{Mark Twain}

We are making plans for the weekend. It looks like we may be going on our annual weekend-away. We rent a hotel room, go out to dinner, and do a bunch of fun (to us) stuff. Since we have the girls with us I'm also thinking we may try to fit in a trip to the zoo this time as well.  Adri's been talking about how much she wants to go to it again lately.

If you haven't already entered my wooden watch giveaway make sure that you do! The giveaway ends on Sunday so there's still a few days left to enter.

Today is another tackling the laundry, reading piles of new library books, making food, grocery shopping Thursday. I hope you all have a wonderful day!
